JDIZZY's 365 # 260: The Drugs Don't Work

The Drugs Don't Work -The Verve (1997)

This is the moment where Britpop takes a long hard look in the mirror and realizes it can't be all about the party. There comes a time when you have to sit down stone cold sober and reflect. Hearing this song my senior year of high school, my first thought was, "Damn, this kicks ' Bittersweet Symphony' 's ass!". I was always shocked that it didn't even chart on this side of the pond, while in the UK it would be Richard Ashcroft and company's biggest hit. It makes one wonder if maybe we should drink more Earl Grey or something!

Mr Harper can make anything sound like he wrote it, and this is no exception!
